INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are common among adolescent girls. Physical activity (PA) has been implicated as both a risk (high-impact PA) and protective factor (low-impact, moderate to vigorous intensity PA) for LUTS in adult women, but its role in adolescent girls is unclear. This study investigated the prospective association between physical activity and LUTS risk in adolescent girls. METHODS: The sample comprised 3,484 female participants in the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: There are sparse data on the use of postoperative pelvic floor physical therapy (PFPT) in patients undergoing vaginoplasty. The primary objective of this study was to compare the impact of PFPT on the ease of vaginal dilation after vaginoplasty in transgender women. We hypothesized that patients undergoing PFPT would report better ease of vaginal dilation following surgery. METHODS: This was a randomized trial of transgender women undergoing vaginoplasty...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: To assess quality of life (QoL) and sexual function outcomes at 3 years after tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) and polyacrylamide hydrogel injection (PAHG) for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). METHODS: In this randomized trial comparing TVT (n = 104) and PAHG (n = 108), we assessed changes in QoL and sexuality using the Urogenital Distress Inventory (UDI-6), Incontinence Impact Questionnaire, Short Form (IIQ-7), Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire (PISQ-12) and RAND-36 Item Health Survey (RAND-36) at baseline and at 3 years...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Pelvic organ prolapse is a common problem affecting women, but there is currently a lack of research focusing on patient experience of pessary changes. This study was aimed at capturing the patient perspective of pessary changes and formally assessing pain during pessary removal and insertion. METHODS: A service evaluation request was granted by South Tees Hospitals NHS Trust. Patients undergoing pessary change (ring, shelf, or Gellhorn) in gynaecology outpatient clinics over a 6-month period were asked to rate their pain scores on a ten-point numerical pain-rating scale...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Evidence suggests that episiotomies reduce the risk for obstetric anal sphincter injuries (OASIs) in operative vaginal deliveries (OVDs). However, there is limited evidence on the importance of episiotomy technique in this context. The primary objective of this study was to assess if an episiotomy suture angle >45° from the median line would be associated with a lower risk for OASIs at the time of OVD. METHODS: This was an ancillary study from the multicentre prospective cohort INSTRUMODA study...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this review is to synthesize existing evidence on the combined effects of the vaginal microenvironment on pelvic dysfunctional diseases. METHODS: This systematic review was conducted in accordance with the PRISMA guidelines. The PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, Wanfang, and China Knowledge Network (CNKI) databases were systematically searched up to January 2023 using the following MeSH terms: "pelvic organ prolapse", "stress urinary incontinence" and "vaginal microenvironment", "microenvironment", "vaginal cleanliness", "vaginitis", "lactobacillus" and other related keywords...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: To perform a cost-effectiveness analysis of concurrent posterior repair performed at the time of laparoscopic hysterectomy with sacrocolpopexy over a 7-year time period. We hypothesize it is not cost-effective to perform a posterior colporrhaphy. METHODS: We used TreeAge Pro® to construct a decision model with Markov modeling to compare sacrocolpopexy with and without concurrent posterior repair (SCP and SCP+PR) over a time horizon of 7 years...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: In 2018, the ARRIVE trial (A Randomized Trial of Induction Versus Expectant Management) concluded that routine induction of labor (IOL) at 39 weeks gestation decreases cesarean delivery risk, with slightly lighter birthweight infants. We debated whether routine IOL would improve, worsen, or not change POP risk compared with expectant management (EM). METHODS: We constructed a decision analysis model with a lifetime horizon where nulliparous women reaching 39 weeks underwent IOL or EM...

AIM: Validation of the recently published newer clinical scoring system for bladder pain syndrome/interstitial cystitis and comparison of the results with the pre-existing standard O'Leary-Sant score. INTRODUCTION: The symptoms are our primary guide to disease severity analysis, treatment, and response monitoring. The combined ICSI/ICPI (O'Leary-Sant Interstitial Cystitis Symptom and Problem Index) consist of a four-item symptom and problem index focusing on urgency, frequency, nocturia, and pain...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The objective was to investigate the effects of spinal stabilization exercises (SSEs) focusing on the pelvic floor with regard to urinary symptoms, pelvic floor muscle strength (PFMS), core stability, quality of life (QoL), and perception of subjective improvement (PSI) in women with overactive bladder (OAB). METHODS: Patients were randomly divided into SSE (n=23) and control (n=24) groups. The SSE group received SSEs focusing on the pelvic floor for 3 days a week for 8 weeks and recommendation...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: In the case of recurrent apical prolapse following laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy (LSCP), one may consider a "redo" procedure. We hypothesized that redo LSCP may carry an increased complication risk and less favorable outcomes when compared with primary procedures. METHODS: This is a single-center, matched case-control (1:4) study, comparing all 39 women who had a redo LSCP and 156 women who had a primary LSCP for symptomatic apical prolapse between 2002 and 2020 with a minimum follow-up of 12 months...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Bladder pain syndrome (BPS)/interstitial cystitis can adversely affect physical, mental, and sexual health. The aim of the systematic review is to compare sexual function between patients with BPS and healthy controls and to examine whether or not treatment of BPS improves sexual function. METHODS: A literature search was conducted on Embase, Medline, and other databases. Studies comparing sexual function in BPS patients with healthy controls and before/after treatment were included...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) primarily results from the weakness of pelvic floor muscles, working synergistically with the abdominal muscles. The current study aimed to compare thickness and contractile function of lateral abdominal muscles in women with and without SUI. METHODS: Thirty-nine women with SUI (SUI group; age: 38.87 ± 8.96 years, body mass index (BMI): 24.03 (5.94) kg/m2 ) and 42 healthy women (control group; age: 36...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of pharmacological hemostatic agents in the reduction of blood loss at vaginal surgery. METHODS: A systematic review of randomized control trials (RCTs) was completed. We searched PubMed (1946-2022), Embase, and CINAHL, using search terms related to vaginal hysterectomies and reconstructive surgeries combined with peri-operative use of hemostatic agents. RCTs comparing hemostatic interventions with placebo or with standard care were analyzed with the primary outcome of estimated blood loss...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: How body mass index (BMI) affects pelvic floor function after a second-degree perineal laceration is unknown. The hypothesis of this study is that pelvic floor dysfunction and complications after an obstetric second-degree perineal laceration are more common in women with a higher BMI 8 weeks postpartum. METHODS: This register-based cohort study includes 10,876 primiparous women with an obstetric second-degree perineal laceration between 2014 and 2021...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The objective was to evaluate sexual function, vaginal prolapse, and quality of life (QoL) in women after radical cystectomy (RC) using validated questionnaires and pelvic organ prolapse quantification (POP-Q) measurement. METHODS: Female bladder cancer patients who underwent RC at our tertiary care center were included (January 2008 to March 2022). Patients received three validated questionnaires (International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire Vaginal Symptoms [ICIQ-VS] Part A, Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire IUGA revised [PISQ], European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire [EORTC] C30/BLM30)...

INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: The pathogenesis of vaginal wind remains unclear. This study was aimed at assessing the association between functional constipation and vaginal wind in women at 6 weeks postpartum. METHODS: This is a multicenter cross-sectional study.
